    In his controversial New York Times best seller, The Roots of Obama’s Rage, Dinesh D’Souza answered the question on everyone’s mind: why is President Obama hell-bent on seeing America fail? The reason, D’Souza explained, is Obama’s fervent anticolonial ideology. Here, in his blockbuster follow-up, Obama’s America, D’Souza shows how President Obama is applying his anticolonial ideology to unmake America and turn it into a country our founders would hardly recognize.

    Well written book that factually tells the past of President Obama. The things we are seeing now were formed over the years and should open one'e eyes as to his future plans

    Determined to build a new life for her family after her divorce, Adelia Hernandez has bought a home in the historic Swan Point neighborhood of Serenity. Promoted to manager of Main Street's most fashionable boutique, she feels revitalized and ready for a fresh start as a single mom. But barely into this new independent phase, she crosses paths with the sexiest man to hit Serenity in years.

    It is hard to determine if the book is good. I like Sherryl Woods novels but Janet Metzger was difficult to listen to for any length of time. Took me forever to finish Swan Point and I read (listen) very quickly

    Peter Decker of the L.A.P.D. never dreamed he'd be spending his honeymoon with his new wife, Rina Lazarus, in an Orthodox Jewish enclave in Brooklyn, New York or that a terrible event would end it so abruptly. But a boy has vanished from the midst of this close-knit religious community, a troubled youth fleeing the tight bonds and strictures he felt were strangling him. The runaway, Noam, is not traveling alone. A killer has taken him under his wing to introduce Noam to a savage world of blood and terror.

    Each book gets you more hooked on the Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus series. I like the growth of the family and the solving of mysteries. Two great plots at the same time.

    In the silent pre-dawn city hours - alone with his thoughts about Rina Lazarus, the woman he loves, 3,000 miles away in New York - L.A.P.D. detective Peter Decker finds a small child, abandoned and covered in blood that is not his. It is a sobering discovery, and a perplexing one, for nobody in the development where she was found steps forward to claim the little girl. Obsessed more deeply by this case than he imagined possible, Decker is determined to follow the scant clues to an answer.

    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Each chapter was complete, documented and meaningful. I felt that the author captured reality and made you see that what is happening in the White House


    What about John McLain’s performance did you like?

    Great reader, kept the listener's attention and ready for the next chapter

    What made the experience of listening to Peter and the Shadow Thieves the most enjoyable?

    Jim Dale is one of the best readers and originally that is why I got The Starcatchers Book 1. Shadow Thieves kept my interest and it was fun. I will be getting Book 3. Peter Pan was always one of my favorite books and now Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson made everything fall into place.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peter always in trouble and getting ot of it. His promises are kept


    What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

    One of the best audiobook reader. He read Harry Potter and I look for books he reads. He makes you part of the story

    At 24, Sally Hobart was a schoolteacher who was living a happy life in Southern California. Waking up one morning, she discovered that a gray cloud had descended upon everything around her. A trip to the ophthamologist’s office revealed that she was suffering from a retinal hemorrhage. Several treatments later, Sally began to understand that soon she would be completely blind. With courage and conviction, Sally has struggled to overcome her visual impairment, and her story is one of great inspiration.

    Detective Peter Decker of the LAPD is stunned when he gets the report. Someone has shattered the sanctuary of a remote yeshiva community in the California hills with an unimaginable crime.

    What made the experience of listening to The Ritual Bath the most enjoyable?

    Fast pace, informative to Jewish info, development of characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As the story progressed it kept you second guessing who commited crime and well as secondary progress of relationship between Rina and Peter


    What about Mitchell Greenberg’s performance did you like?

    Terrific reader, liked accents and voices of many characters


    Any additional comments?

    I will surely get rest of series
